2018 Arcus/Places Prize Lecture: Jack Halberstam

What might the abstract and the architectural offer in terms of transgender representation?

In Unbuilding Gender: Trans* Anarchitectures In and Beyond the Work of Gordon Matta-Clark, Jack Halberstam extends the ideas of unbuilding and creative destruction that characterize Gordon Matta-Clark’s work to develop a queer concept of trans* anarchitecture for expressing unbecoming.

Jack Halberstam is the recipient of the 2018 Arcus/Places Prize for innovative public scholarship on gender, sexuality, and the built environment, a collaboration between the College of Environmental Design at UC Berkeley and Places, supported by the Arcus Endowment.

The lecture will take place on Wednesday 3 October at 6.30pm in 112 Wurster Hall, UC Berkeley, and is free to attend and open to all. The 2018 Arcus/Places Prize article will be published on Places on October 4.
